Google Summer of Code 2008

We are now seeking student participants. We look for evidence that the student has a real interest in our project, 'Do they actually use it?' rather than just choosing some project that is part of GSoC.

If you are an interested student, please follow these steps:

  1. Review the student app documentation. Also check the GSoC FAQs, especially from 'How does a student apply?'.
  2. Make sure you are eligible.
  3. On the Audacity Wiki, check the project ideas page.
  4. If you find an interesting idea, or have one of your own, check GSoC FAQ.
  5. Then email us. Far better to discuss plans with us before applying.

If you know any students who might be interested, possibly those already involved in music/audio research, please point them to our website for this information.
